Greg makes an excellent point here about introducing beneficiaries to
the wider Linux community. What relationships, if any, does each state
have with local/regional Linux community groups?

With CB-NSW, all people involved there, that I have met or are active on
the CB-NSW mailing list, are involved in SLUG (Sydney Linux Users Group)
and the relationship between the two is close, although un-official, as
a result. This is not only useful for leverage of expertise but for
participating in social activities, install fests and for recruitment of
technical "muscle".

Introduction to a wider Linux community can also remove some the
isolation a recipient may feel when introduced to "this Linux thing". 

You're probably already on top of that though :)
